Please HELP me With a NEW GROUND UP PC Build All IDEAS are most welcome

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm not giving up as Im finding it difficult to find a LINK (or Thread to help me with a (hash-bash) - PC BUILD Ground UP) HELP

]Can someone PLEASE HELP ME out, Ive been in HOSPITAL having (MY HIP Pinned) - (Which was quite a delicate procedure)..

Anyways I'm in recovery +Plus Ive been in the PC / GEEK Business for 20+Plus yrs - And have built quite a few PC's in this period

However I have NEVER TAKEN ON A PROJECT That wasn't designed and built from the ground up without my Specs. etc.

NEVERTHELESS - This time I want to build a Completely NEW PROJECT for ME MYSELF and I. However, I'm asking for the HELP

of the members of this Forum, to "HELP ME CHOOSE A LOT" see below:

1). HELP Pick me the BEST GAMING Case "for the Money" ATM - Plus window essential that's why I picked this Thread.- I do NOT know
all the PC cases out there as there must be tonnes. I'm Humbly asking for your help, as I want or need a case that can be taken out of
the box with NO FANS to BUY (for once) and all is there so I have NO Modifications to make.

2). HELP me choose a CPU as Ive NOT kept upto DATE with the AMD PILE DRIVER FX-6300 FX-8350 and INTEL i5 / i7 CPU's
I have a Buget of £240/$350 for a CPU, but am hoping not to use up all the "£240 or $350 if the NEW FX-6300 FX-8350 are worth a look, however
I guess its a MATTER of Opinion, at the end of the day. I LOVE INTEL I MUST SAY and I usually would settle for nothing less.
However I read that there has been some improvements to the Bulldozer Architecture, to Cross Over to PileDriver I really need to
Know if the AMD Setup is really worth it, but it means BUYING a Modern AMD 990FX Motherboard. which would eat into a reserve
Bank of £100 or $150 pounds. biggrin.gif

3). Once again, Im doing this Project because I would love a PC that others have helped me (Put together a Rig) NOT just of my ideas
BUT their Ideas too, so I can assure you I will take your suggestions, seriously..
I have PLENTY of GOOD Quality Corsair RAM, I have A (TOP NOTCH Boxed 800w GOLD PSU). My Rig BOARD (only I do NOT have to BUY another)
will be the (ASUS P8P67 EVO Board) I have updated the BIOS to accept the new IVY BRIDGE CPU if needed its ready, (Ivy-B or Sandy-B ready)

4). Anyone whom may have any suggestions on anything else I may have forgotten, apart from MX4 Paste, I have a (NEW 212 EVO Cooler)
+Plus a (Geild GX-7 Cooler) I can use either, Plus I forgot to mention I also have a (NEW Corsair H70) which I bought last year never used.
Most of the main parts I have, just need all off your opinions, and many Kudos, to all to wish to take part and offer HELP.
This may NOT be the ideal forum thread for this build, but come one GUYS you are all intelligent peeps.. and I value your pimping ideas too.

5).
That's all I have to SAY only: I really appreciate all who can help or decide to take part cheers! Thanks in Advance to all. - David

PS. I have never asked anyone for help to build a PC its always been my own workman ship, that's why I am "now open from all angles"
for ideas, to build something- So I can say YEH - Thanks to those guys from: that GEEK 'Overclockers Forum'. - Please contribute thanks again.!
smile.gifsmile.gifthumb.gif

Thanks and Kudos to all who is willing to HELP me, because I'm mainly at HOME all day during the recovery process, so Ive got plenty of time.!

@ xnuw

Thanks for your suggestions I will be taking on board - Thank-you - so much.!!

Its going to be a choice between the Z77 Gigabyte Motherboard UD5, OR ASUS P8PZ77 V PRO

And the Caviar Black or Blue. HD

THEN THE GPU will etheir be a non ref design OC HD7950 / HD 7970 or GTX-670 OC WITH COPPER HEAT PIPES.

i LIKE THE BOARD U CHOOSE VERY MUCH; IT - could be on the menu if I buy a more expensive video card over £300

as it has a lot of the features I'm looking for - CHEERS

If you want the Asus board, I'd just get the P8Z77-V unless you need something specific the Pro offers. There won't be any performance difference between them, so you can save some money.

I have that Asus board and it is a really great board. Their fan control software is extremely easy to use as is the bios. No problems with overclocking. My only knock on it is I'd like more sata ports.
